Colbert and The Late Show are coming back to TV next Monday

Colbert and The Late Show are coming back to TV next Monday

As we all continue to collectively work out what the hell “normal” might mean in a world that feels anything but, not even the glowing happiness box known as TV has been immune to the forces of change. And although it’s since spread to the live-action television industry as a whole, the late-night talk shows were some of the first TV series to face series production problems during the...

Exclusive: Introducing WattsApp, the new app from Reggie Watts

Exclusive: Introducing WattsApp, the new app from Reggie Watts

It’s either the best time in the world to launch an app, or almost the worst, but Reggie Watts has to be hoping it’s the former. The comedian, musician, and co-host of The Late Late Show With James Corden has just launched WattsApp, a techno-savvy look into his life, work, and techno junk drawer.

As Watts told The A.V. Club, he is launching the app because he “wanted to have control over the...

A Venn diagram to determine if you should watch Justin Bieber beatbox “Smelly Cat” from Friends

A Venn diagram to determine if you should watch Justin Bieber beatbox “Smelly Cat” from Friends

Hello, and welcome to this article about how Justin Bieber beatboxed his way through one rousing chorus of “Smelly Cat,” a song that Lisa Kudrow’s Phoebe Buffay first sang in a second-season episode of Friends. We know that you have many choices when it comes to the internet to consume, and we’re grateful that you chose to spend one of your clicks with us. This video is 14 minutes and 20...

The VFX community didn't appreciate that Cats joke during the Oscars

The VFX community didn't appreciate that Cats joke during the Oscars

Last night’s Oscars didn’t have a host, which meant there was a little more time here and there for presenters to do little comedy routines. There were generally pretty good, like Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus doing a fun bit about how they don’t know what a cinematographer does or the tour de force that Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig put on (and that clip doesn’t even include their...

Missy Elliott, John Mulaney to co-star in Cinderella movie we guess we have no choice but to go see

Missy Elliott, John Mulaney to co-star in Cinderella movie we guess we have no choice but to go see

There’s something profoundly irritating about really good movie casting, the kind that can happen when a perfectly called shot tips a film—Camila Cabello’s upcoming Cinderella , for instance—from “Why the fuck are they making another goddamned Cinderella movie? ” to “Welp, guess we’re going to go see another goddamned Cinderella movie.” Casting, like, say, bringing in Missy Elliott to play a...

James Corden really needs you to know that he drives the car in Carpool Karaoke

James Corden really needs you to know that he drives the car in Carpool Karaoke

A recent video from a bystander in L.A. made its rounds last week. In it, James Corden and Justin Bieber can be seen in a towed SUV, where they are clearly filming a segment for Carpool Karaoke. The image of Corden not driving the like an honest chauffeuring songster rocked the internet (well, at least five despondent Twitter users) and on last night’s Late Late Show With James...

Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon bid emotional farewells to Kobe Bryant

Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon bid emotional farewells to Kobe Bryant

“We loved him because he was ours,” was how Jimmy Kimmel opened his format-breaking Monday episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which dismissed the usual studio audience and roster of guests in favor of a show-long tribute to NBA legend Kobe Bryant . Airing in Los Angeles, Kimmel began his show by describing how, for that city’s people especially, the shocking accidental death of Bryant, his...

We shan’t spoil the best part of this text-based Paul McCartney game, but know this: It rules

We shan’t spoil the best part of this text-based Paul McCartney game, but know this: It rules

There are plenty of little tiny moments of delight in The Paul McCartney Simulator, an itch.io text-based adventure game from Brooklyn comedian Ramsey Ess. But the best is one that’s such a fun, weird, perfect, and oddly relatable surprise that we’re loathe to spoil it. Perhaps you should go play it and then we can get down to business. But first, some details:

The premise of The Paul...

James Corden got Steve Buscemi and Tim Roth to do a Reservoir Dogs parody

James Corden got Steve Buscemi and Tim Roth to do a Reservoir Dogs parody

Reservoir Dogs has gone 28 years without a sequel, which is good because it absolutely doesn’t need one. Even so, the temptation to revist such a career-defining film must be powerful for those involved. How else to explain the decision made by Steve Buscemi and Tim Roth to reprise their parts as Mr. Pink and Mr. Orange for the benefit of a Late Late Show With James Corden video parodying the...

How did it take this long for us to get a Marvel's Mrs. Maisel crossover?

How did it take this long for us to get a Marvel's Mrs. Maisel crossover?

Amazon’s Emmy-winning series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel recently dropped its third season, and yet, it took The Late Late Show With James Corden all this time to finally pick up the “Marvel’s Mrs. Maisel” matchup pun that was just sitting there, begging for some sort of humorous execution. Better late than never, we guess, as guest Rachel Brosnahan explains in a filmed bit on...

Paul Rudd leads a trio of guest stars mocking Alec Baldwin's Trump

Paul Rudd leads a trio of guest stars mocking Alec Baldwin's Trump

Look, nobody’s happy about Alec Baldwin still playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. Not the critics , not Trump , and not even Baldwin . (Darrell Hammond probably has some thoughts , too.) Still, beware of the favor you do to Lorne Michaels goofing on a fringe reality show laughingstock that turns into a three years-and-running drag for everyone involved. Speaking of dragging,...

Saturday Night Live flatters Jennifer Lopez, who sort of deserves it

Saturday Night Live flatters Jennifer Lopez, who sort of deserves it
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

“I like it when it’s mean but not about me.”

“I’m not an actor, I’m an [everything] star [and also very attractive]!”

Jennifer Lopez is 50. That’d be a rude thing to start of a review with, if Jennifer Lopez hadn’t come out for her monologue resplendent in a form-fitting tux (later quick-changed into that dress), told everyone she’s 50,...

Edward Norton doesn't wanna do Fight Club bits anymore

Edward Norton doesn't wanna do Fight Club bits anymore

Two decades since its premiere, the satirical view of masculinity depicted in David Fincher’s Fight Club  continues to spark debate. But, though the culture might not be through with it, Edward Norton sure as hell is. Swinging by The Late Late Show with James Corden, the actor, who played Fight Club’s spiraling narrator, found himself deterred from promoting his upcoming Motherless Brooklyn...

Late-night tries to find something new to say about the same fucking gun madness

Late-night tries to find something new to say about the same fucking gun madness

“Here we are again.” That’s how James Corden opened his Late Late Show on Monday, after a wrenchingly extended montage of all the times the congenitally congenial British transplant has opened his chummy late-night show with a bewildered eulogy for the people killed in that day’s mass gun violence in America. Old clips from his four-and-a-half years on the show about massacres carried out by...

Jake Gyllenhaal lauds sister Maggie as "The Greatest Gyllenhaal" during Whitney Houston song parody

Jake Gyllenhaal lauds sister Maggie as "The Greatest Gyllenhaal" during Whitney Houston song parody

Did you know “love” is actually synonymous with “Gyllenhaal”? Because, fun fact, it is. And James Corden wants you all to know with this Whitney Houston parody professing his love for Jake Gyllenhaal. Like a lot of us, Corden just cannot get Gyllenhaal out of his damn head. Even puppies in sunnies can’t do the trick. While in London to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home , the actor embraced...

Michelle Obama to face James Corden in Late Late Show dodgeball match

Get ready for round two of the Revolutionary War, because a bunch of American celebrities are going to face off against a bunch of British celebrities in a dodgeball match for James Corden’s Late Late Show. Corden is taking his show to London next week, and it looks like he’s going to celebrate the homecoming by inadvertently proving—once again—that America is cool and England is lame. Now,...

Watch the opening number from last night’s Tony Awards, featuring Bryan Cranston having to pee

Watch the opening number from last night’s Tony Awards, featuring Bryan Cranston having to pee

Last night, host James Corden kicked off the annual Tony Awards ceremony as you might expect: By singing a song about the magic of theater. Specifically, Corden’s song-and-dance routine made the case that a night on Broadway is far more interesting than anything streaming on your cable box at home because theater is by definition live and, thus, unpredictable. It’s fitting, then, that just as...

Let's revisit Neil Patrick Harris' incredible opening performance to the 2013 Tony Awards

Let's revisit Neil Patrick Harris' incredible opening performance to the 2013 Tony Awards

As awards-ceremony opening numbers go, the Tonys are a pretty high bar. Since they celebrate stage shows, you would think/hope that they would have the best command of the stage. James Corden hosts again this Sunday, and he previously offered a lovely opening number in 2016 with “This Could Be You,” living out his childhood dream of being on Broadway by diving into popular stage...

Celine Dion makes "Baby Shark" bearable in delightfully odd Carpool Karaoke

Celine Dion makes "Baby Shark" bearable in delightfully odd Carpool Karaoke

Céline Dion can sing—with a voice like hers , you could sing the ingredients on a cereal box and still make it sound good. It, of course, helps that Dion’s had some of the best ballads of all time under her belt—“My Heart Will Go On,” “Because You Loved Me,” and the lesser known (but vital) “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now”—but what happens when she sings something a little more...juvenile?...

Here are Paul Rudd and James Corden, obliviously hosting the world's most inappropriate children's show

Here are Paul Rudd and James Corden, obliviously hosting the world's most inappropriate children's show

Whatever happened to the days of subtly corrupting the budding youth with the occasional tongue-in-cheek, adult-friendly joke carefully couched in whimsy? While we try to figure that out, watch this clip of Paul Rudd and James Corden unconsciously mimicking hand jobs to kiddie songs as the thrice failed Naptime Boyz.

“The Untold Story Of The Naptime Boyz”chronicles the shortcomings...
